The program was wonderful, as rigorous as one wanted to make it, the instructor taught to many levels and she had a wonderful eye for critique. She was extremely informative and I learned new skills.

The instructor, Nancy Thompson, is so down to earth. Everyone just loves her. This was my second time at this class. You don't have to be good at painting or drawing. Some never painted before. Nancy will guide you and you will be so surprised and pleased with what you achieve. The environment easy going and fun, no pressure. I can't wait to do it again!

This workshop was great. The Nancy Thompson, instructor, had a great sense of humor in addition to her knowledge of the subject and how to help us achieve a stronger level of painting. She recognized our individual needs and challenged us -- at least me to do better. Our coordinator was always available and fun. She was with us because she enjoyed it. The workshop was fun and we got acquainted, but we did not have to endure "the get-acquainted games" to get to know each other. The group in attendance bonded uniquely and helped each other. I feel I really made a step up in my ability. The accommodations were convenient, the rooms, dining area and workshop areas close enough and yet were easily accessible. I'm ready to go again.

Nancy Thompson is extremely talented and an excellent instructor. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in learning about watercolor or honing their techniques.

This was my first Road Scholar program and it was excellent. The instructor not only demonstrated many techniques that you could try to apply to various paintings but she had great stories to share that enhanced the course. She spared my interest to continue to apply what I learned to improve my skills back at home. The overall program was first rate! Thanks

Nancy Thompson is a wonderful instructor. Even if you have never used water paints before, She makes this an educational and fun experience. You will paint!
